Summary of Publicity for Nonprofits
Generating Media Exposure That Leads to Awareness, Growth, and Contributions
If you want great publicity for your nonprofit organization, devise a sound plan and create a clear message.
This well-organized book is about publicity as opposed to public relations. That distinction is critical for anyone who wants news media coverage for a nonprofit organization. Sandra L. Beckwith covers everything you need to start a basic publicity campaign, including a list of tools. She tells you how to devise and implement a publicity plan. This basic, practical guidebook contains numerous checklists, examples, guidelines and tips for every conceivable activity a nonprofit organization's publicity person might undertake to help it attract media attention. Although veteran professional nonprofit publicists may find some of the instructions too basic, getAbstract recommends this as a worthwhile reference for most people who are handling publicity for charitable organizations. And, it is a positive gold mine for inexperienced volunteers.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to create a publicity strategy and plan for your nonprofit organization;
- How nonprofit organizations can use publicity effectively; and
- How to prepare and use specific publicity tools.
